The Power Macintosh 5200/75 LC was introduced on April 3, 1995 and was discontinued in favor of the Power Macintosh 5260 on April 13, 1996.

Features[]

The Power Macintosh 5200 contained a 75 MHz PowerPC 603 processor. However, its logic board, code named "Cordyceps", was still based on the LC architecture, which hampered performance like its desktop sibling, the Power Macintosh 6200.[1] Its serial port also lacked GeoPort capabilities, unlike other more advanced Power Macintosh models of the era.[2] Despite its new all-in-one design, the cost-cutting measures made it considered one of the most compromised models from Apple Computer.[3]
